Celebrate #FoodSafety Education Month by buying a food thermometer and using it to make sure meat reaches a temperature high enough to kill germs.
🌡160°F for ground meats, such as beef and pork
🌡165°F for all poultry, including ground chicken and turkey
🌡145°F for whole cuts of beef, pork, veal, and lamb (then let rest for 3 minutes before carving or eating)
